Wow Andrew, you certainly have been busy, I'm surprised that the Sainsburys security guard didn't catch you and ask what you were up to i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif I must say I have never seen anything like the touch screen display in any Sainsburys near me.
Not far off 1000 posts Belinda. I guess when you get back on-line at home it won't take you long to reach that magic number
They've had one of those touch screens for the chart and audio samples in my second closest Sainsbury's for a couple of years. This store (Hedge End) was when built the largest Sainsburys in the south of England so I suspect they have had it on trial there. Whenever I go there, I always play Hayley samples when she's in the chart and every time I walk by, I play them again - and again - to spread the word! They also had a big video screen playing frequent promos of Treasure in the first week, but I haven't checked again since then.
Those touch screens - and the video screens - are a brilliant idea I think so now, I hope they are putting them into every Sainsburys store - the digital age is helping to spread the word!
Great photos, Belinda. Looks as though she has an LP version for NZ, judging from the size and shape of the advertising! I bet Sophie and Isaac have fun walking down the road and thinking to themselves, 'Wow! thats my big sister'! I can't believe they'll ever get so blasé about it they don't take any notice.
Please keep us informed as to how hers and your fellow Kiwi's are responding to the release. Much news time? Many requests, other chat? How are the papers covering it?
We're very interested in hearing all things Hayley and Kiwi.
Her eyes were the blue of cornflowers that dance amongst ripening wheat, Her hair the colour of golden sands bleached by summer's heat.
Hi Roger, maybe you can answer this when you got your promotional Treasure package was there a Treasure. Booklet along the lines of the Big Booklet that was given out when people bought a cd at the signings for the last two releases in NZ .
Im wondering if Hayley does come home for promotion and a signing in Chch will they have the booklets this time.
Just double check that those aren't vinyl LPs at the bottom of the CD rack like "Postscript" Peter said... If you don't mind! Yeah... no doubt Hayley will have some very proud family members and friends visiting that store... It looks as though members of staff are preparing for a celebration in honour of Hayley! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif Perhaps they have scheduled something special for April 10th too?
Thanks for the article. The fact that West Side Story was mentioned came as a surprise because my understanding was that all news about it was still strictly embargoed. As that appears to be no longer the case, I will start a new thread on it just as soon as I work out where to put it! There is not a great deal more news that I can add though.
Hi Roger I knew somethings coming tonight! I feel pretty sure that you will post it tonight once you have found somewhere to put it. As long as you don't post it in America!. If you do then I'll tell Officer Krupke.
Hi Martin, I just can't resist posting this !! (poet, didn't know it!)
"The most beautiful sound I've ever heard......... HAYLEY say it loud and there is music playing, say it soft and it's almost like praying..."
Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul. Source unknown.
Hi All, I decided to put these in this thread too. Refer : hwi.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=Suggestions&action=display&thread=1162072326&page=5#1175131538 Apologies for not having posted these pics before. The name of the shop in the top pic is clearly shown. It was in Pitt St. Mall in Sydney Centre. The sales lady described Hayley as a very popular artist. ie. Sales were going well. I wasn't quick enough on the uptake to rotate the CD case around to show Hayley's face. Interestingly enough, "Melancholy interlude" was playing on the shops speaker system as I took that shot.
click below for 1024pix wide file farm1.static.flickr.com/246/444761861_afe218e798_o.jpg Next 2 shots were both in HMV also fronting to Pitt St. Mall. This time I rotated a CD to show Hayley's face instead of the lable. Shame that the Cover designer couldn't predict the positioning of that huge ugly lable. I notice that they're all in that pos. You'll have noticed the company Hayley is in & also which row she occupies in both the shops !!!
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
